Romance Monographs

On January 1, 1992, the Department of Modern Languages of the University of Mississippi acquired the distinguished book series Romance Monographs and will continue to pursue its original goals in the field of academic publishing.

Romance Monographs was founded in 1971 by Professor Urban Tigner Holmes of the University of North Carolina as a private corporation devoted to scholarly publishing in the various Romance languages and literatures. Professor Holmes created the series to counter the growing trend among university presses toward selection of manuscripts based on sales potential rather than quality of scholarship or contribution to the discipline. The format of the University of North Carolina Studies in Romance Languages and Literatures series served as a model for this new publishing venture.

The first title in the series appeared in 1972. During its years of existence Romance Monographs has issued a total of SIXTY-EIGHT volumes plus reprints of two works originally published by other presses and six “special volumes.” A new volume (RM 68) was published last year and is now available. Although most of the volumes deal with French or Hispanic literature, studies are also available on Italian, Portuguese and Romanian topics. Authors in the series include well known, established scholars in the Romance languages as well as younger professors just beginning their careers.
